Here is an example of a long-outdated practice that is (sadly) still in effect today in some locations.
The McChronicles dropped into a McDonald's in Shanghai, China yesterday and saw something that it has reported on before. We remain dismayed to see unprotected (no paper wrapper) straws being dispensed from a box.
While waiting for our order, The McChronicles observed customers dispensing bare straws, getting too many, rolling them out onto the counter, putting some back, etc. We pity the next customer in line.
The McChronicles hopes that McDonald's can invest in hygiene and institute wrapped straws throughout China.
